Reset passcode for your wireless account

You can change your wireless account passcode or reset it if you don’t know it.  Keep in mind, your passcode isn’t the same thing as your sign-in or voicemail password.


ArticleDETAILED STEPS

Change or reset your passcode

Do you know your passcode and want to change it?

  1. Go to Profile.

Requirements for security passcode changes

  • Can’t have letters, spaces, or symbols.
  • Can’t contain sequential numbers, like 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8.

Do you want to reset your passcode so you can sign in?

  1. Go to myAT&T and enter your ID and password.
  2. On the Confirm security passcode page, select Get a new passcode.
  3. Follow the prompts to enter and submit your new passcode.

Sign in without your wireless account passcode

  • During sign-in, you can enter the wireless account passcode and check Turn off extra security. This removes the extra security from your wireless account so you don’t have to enter the passcode next time. Learn more about extra security.
  • If you have accounts other than wireless linked to your ID, you can sign in without the wireless account passcode. Just check Skip passcode and don’t manage this account today to sign in and manage your non-wireless accounts.
